TicketWeb @ The Great Escape – Day One

The first day of this year’s Great Escape is over and oh what a first day it was! Here’re our highlights from the Thursday of TGE.

The sun came out to play!

We’re the main ticket provider for this year’s festival and everyone looked resplendent rocking the TW purple and green. Perfect colours for this weather if we don’t say so ourselves.

The first band du jour

Whoever thought bringing a Brew Dog beer van to TGE is a genius. That and MIAMIGO’s pop tunes made us boogie at the New Road stage.

Transviolet are a very exciting prospect

A band we're very fond of! @transviolet are smashing it! #TGE16

Great live, great tunes and a brilliant front-woman. This band could be filling arenas in a few year’s time.

We took over My Hotel and put on a little shindig for delegates at this year’s festival. Thanks to all who came and hung out with us.

We made Blossoms one of ones to watch this year and we’ve never felt more vindicated. An absolute pleasure to watch their rise.

2016 is the year of Craig David  

Craig fucking David

As you can see, the people turned up for Craig David at Wagner Hall. No-one can touch him at the moment and “7 Days” is still an absolute corker of a tune.

Day two will be up tomorrow! Follow us on Twitter and Instagram for live updates!
